The Chrysler Windsor is a full-size car which was built by Chrysler from 1939 through to the 1960s. The final Chrysler Windsor sold in the United States was produced in 1961, but production in Canada continued until 1966.
The Windsor was positioned above the entry-level Royal from 1939 to 1950. With the demise of the Royal for the 1951 model year, the Windsor became Chrysler’s price leader through to 1960.
The Windsor first came out in 1939 as the junior model to the larger Chrysler New Yorker. Production ended in January, 1942, as all automobile companies in the USA switched to war production. After the war, the Windsor was put back into production. It was similar to the 1942 models. New things included a handbrake warning signal that warned that the handbrake was not fully released, and a new grille. The Windsor made up 62.9% of the company’s sales.
